  1. Brilliant reaction from the public for this great (almost) centurion ! But lets not get carried away with knighthoods etc. Their are thousands of volunteers and fund raisers that help the less fortunate on a regular basis who will always be unsung heroes . Im not detracting from what Capt Tom has achieved , truly amazing but lets not forget the everyday people.
  2. Go to the Twist Club in Rotherham ? It was held in winter at the Sheffield Rd swimming baths in the 60s . If so what are your recollections of the bands that played there.
  3. the problem lies in your first line...the EFL. About as effective as a junior Disprin.
  4. When I started at the Company the founder had semi retired ( Colin Robbins) . Running of the company had been handed to 2 of his sons, Tony and Mike Robbins. Family owned and run company and the best I ever worked at .
  5. I remember a lady who lived directly opposite, she sometimes did some cleaning and generally looked after the premises, I think her name was Dora, a really nice lady.
  6. I worked for the company who were sited at No. 40 ..Hallamshire Heating , remember some really nice people who lived adjacent, the noise generated was quite severe sometimes but I don’t remember anyone complaining !
  7. Your not wrong, and I’ve decided it’s time to ..... not forget about it , but let it go. Thanks for the nudge FP
  8. Just bumping this thread in the hope that someone relevant sees it
  9. Ive got a box set of the previously aborted " Smile " album by the Beach Boys and 1 cd , about 70 mins, is totally dedicated to Good Vibrations . they are not all out-takes, most selections were just too long for the final version so never came to light other than on bootlegs or now on the boxed set. Its a real insight to the complex layered build up to the song.
  10. Ive decided to try and rectify or apologise for past discretions, and one includes a lovely blond haired lass from Sheffield her name is/was Pat Briggs and we met whilst on holiday in our teens in the mid 60s at the Humberston fitties caravan site near Cleethorpes ( we knew how to holiday in those days) After returning home we met again in Sheffield, If remember she lived near Norwood Rd and worked at a drapers or tailors on the Parkhill flats site. We arranged to meet again in my then hometown of Rotherham, but I let her down because I was broke and too embarrassed to turn up and explain, she sent me a letter full of what you would expect from someone who had been stood up and I never replied which has bothered me to this day. Pat , if you happen to see this, or anyone knows or knew her could pass it on . Im sorry
  11. Whilst in Lloyds bank in Louth I stood alongside a woman reading a flyer declaring 60s balladeer Frank Ifield was doing a show locally, as she thought out loud as to what songs he had sung i said to her .." I remember you" and she replied looking at me.. " You taught me how to yodel" to which I answered " Don't blame me ! " but... " I'm confessing" it was the " Wayward wind" For someone who can't remember what day it is half the time I couldn't believe the spontaneity of the episode !!
  12. Hi Alan 58, can you remember your crew wagon number? I started on No. 3 but can't remember which one I finished on, supervisors I remember were Ken Walton, Graham Hacks, Danny Riorden and Dixie Dean.
  13. Thanks for your replies, done a bit more research now I have his surname, even found a short video of him doing drum coaching
